“Extreme by Design” follows teams of Stanford business, engineering, and medical students as they develop affordable solutions to pressing problems in developing countries in southern Asia. The students are part of a course offered through Stanford’s Institute of Design called “Design for Extreme Affordability.”

From the film’s synopsis: “The students apply the “Design Thinking” approach, tapping previously undiscovered creativity and draw on methods from engineering and industrial design, and combine them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world. Believing that they can and will make a difference, the students open their hearts and brains and remarkably, almost magically, their products take shape and work.”

This event is sponsored by Penn State University Libraries.
